dc scarf and more orange in my navy

Next up is a simple dc scarf. It is 6" x 60" including fringe. The fringe is one strand each of the red and blue.

I used an I hook and a chain of 21.

Really not much more to say about this scarf. 

I am working on a V stitch scarf right now and would you believe that I have found orange in my blue AGAIN?? I didn't believe it. But sure enough, I am picking out bits of orange. It is not nearly the volume that was in the other skein, at least not at this point. Just a few small bits. But what are the odds, eh? I guess I am just lucky that way. LOL

The skein is not the same lot. This one is Code: 4641 (which is the same as the other), but 20/04/11 and 12:16pm rather than 15/02/11 and 12:20pm. I am guessing that the first is the date April 20, 2011 and February 15, 2011 so processed on two different dates.

Annoying, but so far I've been able to pick at it and get the orange bits out. I've used half the skein already so it doesn't seem that it will be a severe problem.

All the skeins I have left have the April 20 date and different times so I'm pretty sure this is not the skein they sent me as a replacement. I just threw it in the box, but it would have been on top and probably used in the other two scarves.

Guess that's it for now.

Happy crocheting!
